The Airlie Beach Hotel first opened in 1968 as a beachside holiday pub for nearby Proserpine residents and local cane farmers and is now owned and operated as a private family business. In recent years the family has embarked on an expansion and redevelopment program that has included the completion of three new stages of development. The renovation has provided the opportunity for sustainable measures to be incorporated in the design of the hotel, resulting in a dramatic decrease in energy use.
Initiatives so far include replacement of energy inefficient fridges as well as installation of a key tag system and water saving shower heads and taps. The hotel is constantly seeking to raise awareness among visitors and new staff members of their commitment to sustainable practices and their responsibility to the environment.
